This book was received from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I stumbled across the first book in this series, Keep Me, and fell totally in love with the characters. Keep Her was equally as mesmerizing and wonderful.
Riley is a total firecracker. She isn’t used to having someone care or watch out for her. She is also really stubborn…just like Beck. I liked her tenacity in the first book through her best friend and her brother’s eyes, and I was glad to see that same tenacity is back with a vengeance in this one. I loved seeing her vulnerable side too.
Beck is her brother’s super sexy best friend. He is wonderful. Attentive. A fire fighter. Super yummy. I didn’t always agree with some of his decisions but I did understand them. He’s also a great friend to Marcus when he’s going through some tough times. Just overall around an amazing guy.
The plot was cool. I loved that it was kind of parallel with the plot of Keep Me. I got to see some things that were in the background of the first book. The romance started off with a bang, then fizzled a smidge, and then came back full force! I totally loved it!
I’d loveeee to see more books in this series, but for now, I’ll check out her other series called Dreams!
Favorite Swoon-worthy Quote: Our tongues became wild, exploring unchartered, yet familiar, territory. I must’ve always wanted to kiss Riley and never knew how badly. Sucking her tongue and biting her lips while confined in this tight space was like feeding a hunger I never knew existed.
